Janet has been our very dedicated full time Front Office Administrator since 2003, though she has been in the dental profession for 25+ years. She began her dental career as a Registered Dental Assistant for 9+ years, before working at the front office of a busy group dental office for 6+ years. She has enjoyed working in both orthodontic and general dental offices because it has enabled her not only to help patients, but also to get to know them as well. Janet says she “appreciates Dr. Vatavuk's impeccable work ethics, the quality of his work, his thoroughness in educating his patients, and his pure passion and love of dentistry."
